Yes, thats exactly it. BUT I tried ordering a USB 2 pci card and stupid newegg... it requires a phone # on your credit card.. and none of our credit cards (like 5) have one.. I thought they had to.

Used to new egg didnt require a # but now it sucks...

but yes, thats what I need. and your telling me it would work? LOL

and like this I can have 3 monitors? HAHA

The adaptor should have come with the vid card. If newegg is giving you fits then just pick it up from a local shop.

Yeah, if you have 3 video outputs, you could have 3 monitors.
